Donald Cerrone vs. Bobby Green Set For UFC 178 Co-Main Event

Posted on August 14, 2014, 08:48 PM by Mike Drahota
Earlier this week (Tues., August 12, 2014), it was announced UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones had been forced out of his anticipated UFC 178 title fight with heated rival Daniel Cormier on September 27 from Las Vegas. The injury caused a bit of event shuffling, with August 30’s UFC 177 co-main event between flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson and Chris Cariaso now becoming UFC 178’s main event. The card still features some great bouts, with the Las Vegas debut of rising featherweight...

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 19 contestant Mike King was unsuccessful in his official Octagon debut, losing a hard-fought decision to Irish fight Cathal Pendred in a “Fight of the Night”-winning affair at July 19’s UFC Fight Night 46 from Dublin, Ireland.

It was found yesterday that King had failed a drug test for Nandrolone, a banned performance-enhancing...

No. 1-ranked UFC light heavyweight Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson has apparently been left in the dark in the confusing UFC 205-pound title picture after champion Jon Jones injured his knee in training, forcing him out of an awaited UFC 178 title fight with Daniel Cormier. That fight only came about when Gustafsson was forced out of his ballyhooed rematch with Jones following their UFC 165 classic, oddly enough suffering the same exact injury as Jones (a torn meniscus). When “Gus”...
